Hi Folks - broad question for the design community here - how do you evaluate your skills as a Product Designer? How do you know if you're improving, getting better or stagnating (doing the same thing)?
I recently wrote an article trying to capture some of the things that a product designer should be thinking about and how to break those skills down into components that can be practiced. But I'm curious to to learn more about how you think about your skills and growth.
- Does your company have a formal product design evaluation criteria?
- How often do you self assess?
- What skills do you find most critical in your current role?
- How do you measure progress on skills that are hard to measure (e.g. "expertise" in using color in design) or handling difficult conversations with stakeholders?
Looking forward to your responses!
